Founded by mum-of-three Abigail Benton in 2021, The Little Silk’s 100% mulberry silk collection is designed to keep knotted hair, skin irritation, baby bald spots and frizz at bay. Their products include fitted baby sheets that help promote hair growth and prevent baby bald spots, and anti-frizz hair scrunchies.    

The Lullaby Trust is proud to be collaborating with a company committed to promoting safer sleep and ensuring that their products conform to the advice. As part of the partnership, The Little Silk made the decision to stop selling sleep nest covers, ensuring the products they sell don’t put babies at risk. The Lullaby Trust does not recommend baby sleep nests as they do not conform to the advice that babies should sleep on a firm, entirely flat surface, and the charity is delighted The Little Silk has decided to make this change. 

Abigail Benton, Founder of The Little Silk said: 

When I started working on The Little Silk, I wanted to create products that would protect baby’s hair and skin without compromising on safety. It was really important to give parents peace of mind knowing that our products are sleep safe. As a mother of 3 small children, I have always relied on The Lullaby Trust to get advice and guidance on sleep safety, so being able to partner with such a special charity is a great achievement, and I am so proud to be able to support their work. 

Jenny Ward, CEO of The Lullaby Trust adds:

‘We are really pleased to be working with The Little Silk, a company that is committed to baby safety and promoting safer seep. Safer sleep saves babies’ lives and it’s vital that all parents and carers are made aware of how to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) for their baby. By supporting our work and promoting our advice, The Little Silk will help us reach even more families with life-saving safer sleep information.’
